On November 7 and 8, a two-day summit will be held by the Lagos State Branch of the Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers (NIESV).
According to the branch’s Publicity Secretary, Mr. Richard Olodu, estate surveying and valuation profession encompasses diverse fields of specialisation, including such land, building, engineering and Business, Estate agency, Investment advisory, property management, facilities management, real estate consultancy, project development and auctioneering, among others. He however regretted that practitioners were widely known for a few of areas perceived to be lucrative.
Olodu said the NIESV summit will endeavor to put an end to this notion with various sessions created for capacity development of all cadre of members of Institution in these various fields of specialisation.
For instance, he said the Master classes will focus on professional and technical development in line with international best practice in various fields with business insight for members.
This NIESV summit is also an opportunity to promote the various faculties of the institution created by its national body to improve service delivery to the public in these fields of practice.
It is open for every member – Fellow, Associate and Probationer – in the estate surveying and valuation practice as well as everyone who is a stakeholder in the real estate industry.
